Presentation: Telling your Story with Blogs
Are you interested in stories of the lives of your ancestors?
Would you like to leave stories from your life for your family and future descendants?
One way to do this is to create a personal online blog.
Each blog need be no more than a page, telling a story with added pictures, videos and links. You can provide a set of tags to help anyone who reads your blog to navigate similar posts. People can make comments on each blog.
Your blog can be kept private or made public. You can leave your blog to family and friends in your will.
This presentation was very popular this Get Online Week and we are planning some follow up sessions so that people can create their own blogs.
